I’ve been mindful of wanting to both do more cool stuff, as well as appreciating the things I experience that are cool.
The night glow at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta:
Everything about the fiesta is fun, but this was our first night glow. It was also our first time attending with a camp friend – and her daughter accidentally knocking my daughter’s tooth out!
Tape exhibition, Cardiff:
This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. It’s an interactive art exhibit – a treehouse/tunnel/otherworldly place suspended between trees….and made of nothing but sticky tape. The time inside this thing felt like a little bit of magic.
Arnos Vale Cemetery:
Despite living so close to this place, we’d never been before last week. It’s a Victorian cemetery and woodland. I’ve been to old cemeteries thst have been reclaimed by nature, but this took it to the next level.
Graves are interspersed into old woodlands, with dark paths twisting around. I swear we saw a Leopard Cat, but I accept it may have actually been a Bengal.
Barleymow’s Maize Maze, Chard:
I LOVE MAZES. And this one went on long enough to freak out both my father in law and son. All us women were laughing rather cruelly and helplessly at their worry we’d never escape.
The kids then climbed and conquered a mountain made of hay bales, before whizzing down the attached steep slide.
